Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

There’s nothing worse than feeling super motivated to get work done and all of the sudden, you sit down at your desk and find that you can’t even think because of how much clutter is around you. If you’ve ever tried to study or work in a chaotic and noisy environment, then you know it’s pretty much impossible to focus and be creative.

We spend so much of our life at our desks and most of the time, pay little attention to how they affect our productivity. Most of the time, our desks are just a constant reminder of all the tedious things that we need to get done and don’t want to do.

Creating a workspace that inspires and motivates you will, believe it or not, make you actually excited to sit down and get some work done.

TGIF, everyone!

If you’ve ever tried to save money for anything, then you know it’s not always as simple as it sounds. It’s easy to trick ourselves into thinking “Oh, just one coffee today won’t break the bank”, and “I’ve earned these $100 pair of shoes I didn’t know I needed until right now.”

Happy New Year!

We are officially one week into 2018. This is about the time where goals, resolutions, and plans start falling though the cracks as we go back to school and work after the holidays. We’re all guilty of it. We want to workout, but now there’s less time. We want to eat healthy, but old patterns start creeping in on us.

The key to keeping new years resolutions and becoming an overall healthier person in 2018 is to transform your goals into habits.

As Aristotle put it, “We are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”

Top 8 Minimalist Travel Essentials

My backpack and duffle bag have become my trusty companions for the next 6 months. Traveling minimal is actually quite new for me, so I really had to experiment with what it is I actually need in addition to doing some research.

I’d be lying if I said I never used to overpack on my trips. However, I’ve actually found that having less things makes life so much easier on the go and also makes the experience much more fun! It’s nice to know that you’re using everything that you bring and also leaving space both mentally and physically to enjoy the experience and people around you. The key to traveling as minimal as possible is to pack items that can be used for multiple purposes.

After much trial and error, I thought I’d share with you my top 8 minimalist, vegan, and sustainable must haves that have helped me with my recent traveling.

Tips for Traveling On A Budget

travel post

Good Morning! Looking back, I’m sad to say that I didn’t make it to my 30 day challenge. Writing every day is much harder than I anticipated. However, my new goal is to keep up with posting now that school is over and I have more time!

As some of you may know, I’ve been doing quite a bit of traveling lately and plan to continue to travel after my stay in Hawaii this summer. It honestly feels like a dream come true being able to explore all the places I’ve dreamed of going. The universe is truly abundant and aligns you with your deepest desires if you’re in tune with yourself. This lifestyle is one I’ve always longed for, but never felt achievable due to circumstances. However, I’m a firm believer that if you want something in life, you just need to make it a priority and make it happen.

How to Change Your Life With Momentum

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

 

Hello everyone!

I’m back from the dead! “insert laughing emoji here*

No but really, it has literally been FOREVER since I wrote a post. I’m not going to lie, the main reason is because I haven’t been as inspired now that my schedule is more full. Between school, work, and now dancing; I leave the house at 7:30am and get home at 10:30pm.

This is a huge change from last semester; where I had the majority of the mornings/ afternoons to myself. I am, however, thankful for my busy schedule because it forces me to be productive. Oddly enough, this is when I am the most at peace and relaxed.

My Travel Essentials + Tips/ Hacks

travel-essentials

Hello Everyone! It has seriously been ages since I wrote a post! This semester has been a crazy one. Between work, school, and some major life transitions I found it hard to keep up posting regularly. Now that the semester is over ( thank god ) I plan to stick to a regular schedule.

With the holidays right around the corner, I know many people will be traveling. I personally will be visiting multiple cities in just under two weeks!  Plus, half of my family lives in Chicago and half lives in California, so I regularly travel between those two cities. I always get so excited for my trips to see family, of course, but also because I love to get organized and pack my suitcase! Over the years ( and through learned experience ) I have developed a system for myself when I go on my trips so I know exactly what I will need to bring to have a comfortable flight. I have tried many “hacks” on Pintrest; some worked and others, well, not so much. I’m going to be sharing some of my in flight essentials as well as practical tips that have helped me get the most of my travels. Whether your going to be traveling for two weeks or two days, hopefully you get some tips that you can take with you this holiday season!
